Police Investigating Serious Animal Cruelty Case in Brampton

Peel Regional Police are looking for two suspects after a seriously injured dog was found at a McDonald’s patio in Brampton.

The incident was caught on video by cameras from the restaurant. In it, two men were seen at the restaurant’s outdoor patio with a Yorkshire Terrier.

One suspect is described as male, with short dark hair and a full beard. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a grey sweater, black pants and red and black Nike shoes.
